July fourth

Fun on the 4rthWe spent July 4th at a church picnic.  It was a gorgeous summer day!  The kids always have so much fun with the other families’ kids.  They just look forward to every gathering.  That’s not hail in the photo, but lots of fun in the ice of a dumped ice chest.

“Honey this year I would really, really, really like to take the kids to go see the fireworks,” I mentioned to my husband several times.  It had been five years since we have gone and the kids didn’t even remember ever having seen fireworks.  It seems we always have little ones and the fireworks start so late that it is just so much easier to put them to bed.

When Jason told us we were going, Little Jason was so excited saying, “It’s going to be my first time to see fireworks!”  We parked and walked a long ways, but Jason timed it really well as we only waited on the grass for about ten minutes before the show started.
